Your Dub Dead Already (Dubplate Special) - (Dj) Instantaneous [ Afrofuturism Foundation ]

Afrofuturism... It's a word that describes an attitude and a way of living.

Dj Instantaneous has concocted a musical production that matches his personality -- willful, whimsical, and encompassing in almost an offhand way all the main strands of the black musical experience.

Instantaneous exudes charisma and a sly wisdom. A lean man to whom the years have been kind, his look is benevolent and ardent at once. He is known to stroll into the audience as he plays/performs, demand that people dance, and flirt with the ladies.

Outside the box, in every sense of phrase, Afrofuturism has little use for music industry categories and conventions. ''I produce cultural music," (Dj) Instantaneous states. ''American music, World music, blues, jazz, African - I continually mix everything together." The foundation of that hodge-podge is noticeably urban and Afrocentric... and arguably rooted in Hip Hop.

This is a cerebral music. Intelligent some may say.

"I wanted to do music, with more cultural roots." (Dj) Instantaneous remarks when asked about the concept behind Afrofuturism. "Thats the ideal behind the CD's (Ep) name; Past, Present & Culture."

The topic of roots comes up all the time with Instantaneous. ''The African connection is a conscious theme," ''I start with Drums," he says, ''rhythms first, that will satisfy old and young audiences, Black or otherwise..." "The beat is the first sound we all hear; inside our Mothers womb. We develop and grow to that rhythm, that beat... we're hooked, addicted to it."

Honestly infectious. The result is a groovy, volatile funk that's liable to veer at any moment into polyrhythms, solo jazz riffs, drum and bass, syncopated beats or call and response.

Afrofuturism in some ways is the epitome of melodic hip-hop. As a hip-hop artists (Dj) Instantaneous understands and embraces the fact he follows great musical traditions, the term Foundation pays homage to such. It seems the next great movement in black music has arrived.

The forthcoming CD (EP) is an immersion in Black musicality, conducted with the realness and authenticity of any inner-city America.

To understand what Black music has been in the past and what kind of future it has, you should listen to (Dj) Instantaneous... you need to hear The Afrofuturism Foundation!

Another sound a dying!

Respect to all Junglist Massive! Lighter!

Junglists are also some times referred to as "rude bwoys" a slang term originally used by Jamaicans (as rude boy), meaning "gangsta" or "badbwoy" ("bad boy"). Certain tracks make references to the "original rudebwoys" as denoting particularly respected junglists. Most members of this sub-culture take great pride in the music created by jungle producers.
